In his letter of December 17, 2010 s/2011/01/letter.pdf], the Honorable Rep.Garamendi asked Dr. Billington to mark the special 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps onSeptember 22, 2011, “by establishing a collection of books about the Peace Corps experiencewritten by former Peace Corps Volunteers and Peace Corps staff.” In response, Dr. Billingtonoffered to develop “a bibliography of books and creative works by former volunteers that couldbe made available through the Library’s Web site.”The bibliographer is grateful to the following Library of Congress staffers (listedalphabetically): Brynda Joyce Harris, Congressional Relations Office, for conducting liaison withCongress;William E.
